Party's Over on Ryanair Flights from UK to Ibiza

The party is over on Ryanair flights that travel from the United Kingdom to the notorious party-hearty island of Ibiza.

Frustrated by years of drunk and rowdy behavior on that particular route, the European budget carrier is banning duty-free alcohol onboard flights if it was purchased in the airport.

Traditionally, this has been the modus operandi of passengers who buy the liquor before they board in order to avoid high prices on the plane and, more likely, limited availability.

Earlier this year, Ryanair banned alcohol on the Glasgow-Ibiza route.

Website reported that Ryanair sent an email to passengers explaining the decision and saying that bags would be searched for any alcohol.

“Any alcohol purchased in airport shops or elsewhere must be packed carefully in a suitable item of cabin baggage, which will be tagged at the gate and then placed in the aircraft hold free of charge,” the airline wrote. “If the alcohol is unsuitable for placing in the hold (e.g. a plastic bag) then customers will be required to dispose of the alcohol in the bins provided.”

Anyone attempting to conceal alcohol “will be denied travel without refund or compensation”, reported.

Ryanair operates flights to Ibiza from Bristol, East Midlands, Stansted, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow Prestwick, Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports, all of which will be subject to the ban, the website said.
